Practice COVIDSafe behaviours, get tested, get financial help

By Our Reporter

The Victorian Multicultural Commission is urging communities to get tested and follow the following advice to curb the spread of the coronavirus. According to a statement from Chairperson Vivienne Nguye, there are coronavirus exposure sites. “If you, or your friends or family, went to or worked at any of the exposure sites listed here at the times indicated, please follow the advice given for that particular site.”

There are only five reasons to leave home
  • Shopping for food and supplies that you need.
  • Care and caregiving.
  • Exercise
  • Work, if you can’t do it from home.
  • Get vaccinated
  • If you’re out, you must wear a face mask.

Support is available. If you are worried about losing wages, you may be eligible for a $450 payment. If you test positive or are a close contact of someone who tests positive, a $1500 payment is available, so you can stay at home.

More information on supports is available here.

Checking in at venues and facilities (including supermarkets) helps with contact tracing and keeps Victoria safe and open. When you check-in, you create a record of the time and date you visited a venue. This means that if there is a COVID-19 outbreak, contact tracers can quickly access your contact information and get in touch with you, if you’ve visited a public exposure site. This will help to contain a COVID-19 outbreak.

Information on how businesses can set up QR codes is available here.

Getting vaccinated helps protect you from getting sick from COVID-19. The vaccines being used in Australia are very effective at preventing serious illness and loss of life from COVID-19. Vaccination centres are open to people who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Please note that individuals aged 40-49 are now eligible to get vaccinated in Victoria.
